Sheridan Sweater from Hey June Handmade

The Sheridan Sweater is a cosy, stylish, yet simple sweater

The Sheridan Sweater from Hey June Handmade is a cosy, stylish, yet simple sweater. View A has a crew neck, and view B features a built-up bateau neckline, similar to a wide mock turtleneck. Both options have a regular banded length, cropped banded length, or cropped hem length. The sleeve styles include a cuffed bishop sleeve, an elasticated bishop sleeve, and a very simple wide bell sleeve.

The Sheridan Sweater is the perfect autumn and winter layering piece to keep you cosy and warm but looking put together and stylish.  It works best in soft knits with some drape and good recovery. Any type of French terry is a great choice as long as it has some spandex (Lycra) for required stretch.  Most double knits, interlocks, ribbings, and heavier jersey will work as well, provided they’re not too thick and have at least 60% stretch on the cross grain. Sweater knits are ideal for the Sheridan as long as they have a sturdier hand. Look for more tightly knit sweater knits or ones that include spandex (Lycra) and you can’t go wrong.

The Sheridan Sweater pairs beautifully with sailor-style pants, skinny jeans, flares, pencil skirts, button down midi skirts, and just about any other bottom imaginable.  Because of its cropped length, it would also be a great layering piece over a dress or jumpsuit too.  It’s easy to dress up or down depending on fabric choice, styling, and accessories, making it perfect for weekends, the office, or going out!  Because it’s very easy to sew, fit, and wear, the Sheridan also makes a great gift!

The pattern includes instructions for finding your best fit and fabric, alterations, a full bust adjustment, and adjusting the length of the sweater and sleeves. This sewing pattern is perfect for confident beginners and comes in sizes 2-22.
